When Apple revealed its new operating system, the town was abuzz. Oh no, Apple is out to kill all sorts of sexy startups! And now Google is doing the same. Some very sexy apps out there might see fierce competition from Google. It is like Walmart came to town, and the mom and pop stores are going belly up.
Apple Is All Over The News
The big dogs are not just going after startups - "Thank you for the feature idea!" - they are also going after each other. Facebook is going after Google in search (Microsoft's Second Act?, Watch Out For Steve Ballmer), Apple is going after Facebook with Twitter, Facebook is going after Apple with HTML5 (Apple Going After Google's Cloud? Facebook Going After Apple With HTML5), Google is going after Apple's iPhone with Android, as after the tablet, Google is now going after Facebook in a big, big way.
And this is just the beginning. It will be interesting to watch how all this plays out over the next few years.
One smart move for Facebook to make right now would be to make it super easy for us to search a wall. Right now only the latest updates seem to matter.
